About-Us-pic_webMJHS Opens Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care

Recognizing the need for improved access to specialist-level community-based palliative care, MJHS has created the MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care. The Institute has three areas of focus: research and analytics; education and training; quality and performance improvement.

Learn more at www.mjhspalliativeinstitute.org

Led by renowned palliative care expert Russell Portenoy, MD, and staffed by a respected team of academics, the goal of the Institute is to promote access to evidence-based, specialist-level palliative care for patients and families coping with serious or advanced illness, whenever and wherever palliative care is needed.

The Institute’s research and analytics efforts will focus on collecting evidence that will inform treatment and the need to assess the benefits and burdens of new systems of care. Education and training initiatives will be devoted to encouraging more practitioners to specialize in palliative care. Quality and performance improvement programs will be committed to the development of measures and strategies that may be broadly applied to new programs in community-based palliative care. Underpinning all Institute activities will be advanced, web-based training and other technology-driven initiatives to optimize information management, communication and education

Initial seed funding for the Institute comes from MJHS Foundation. Continued innovation and growth will be supported by grants, in addition to individual and corporate donors.
